Weekly Wonder: Lion And The Lamb

Weekly Wonder: Lion And The Lamb

We have all heard a song that we just can’t help but sing along to. You catch yourself humming it, or singing the bridge over and over again in your head. You know it is a good song because the beat is catchy and it’s fun to sign along, but has this ever happened to you when you slow down and you actually listen to the words and you are blown away by them? This could be shocking with most of today’s songs being about sex, money, drugs, and under valuing women OR it could be awing as you are just blown away by the truth and reliability of the song. 


This exact thing happened today with Leeland’s song, “Lion and The Lamb.”Bethel-Music-Have-It-All-cover-1

I have been singing along to it for a while, making it my go-to Spotify play in the car, but it wasn’t until recently when the power of the lyrics hit me.

“Our God is the Lion…. Our God is the Lamb”

What? How could God be both of those things? They are so different. 

Lions are powerful, leaders, beasts- the King of the jungle; while lambs are meek, shy and followers. How can our Heavenly Father be both of these?

But then, it all made total sense.

As powerful and mighty as our Father is, with the ability to do as He pleases, He willingly sacrificed his Son, the Lamb, in order to be close to us and free us from the power of sin and darkness.

How beautiful is that? And how beautfiul is that imagery?

One of the closing lines of the song says, “Who can stop the Lord Almighty? Who can stop Him? No one.

Wherever you are right now, take the time to really reflect upon the fact that nothing can stop the Lord Almighty. If God is for you, with power and force and the protection of a Lion, and also the tenderness and sacrificial love of a sheep, then what else could you need? Be encouraged today to keep chasing after your Father.
